This paper presents a new algorithm for high efficient control of solar generators in photovoltaic applications which uses the current voltage relation derived from the equivalent circuit of the solar generator to adjust the maximum power point (MPP). Based on simulation results the performance of the new algorithm is demonstrated and compared with the performance of a conventional Perturb and Observe (P&O) Algorithm.
